Default Re: It's coming back again.

The urges are all part and parcel of the love/hate relationship we share with SI. As far as I have gathered through your posts and threads you came to depend on the pain as a coping mechanism. In your subconscious you associate the pain with feeling better about situations you found yourself in, yourself and your life. This dependence you had makes it harder to leave behind.

You are not alone, however. I am in the same boat as you, almost. Just try to stay strong and distract yourself with different activites. Be it listening to music and mooching about online or reading or watching tv. All that matters is that you occupy yourself with something and therefore distance yourself from your immediate desire to harm yourself.
Try to stay strong
